Recovering from a failed RAID 0 array

#1 Post by AnActualPotato » 29 Jun 2017, 11:40

Hi all

I have 3 1TB drive in RAID 0, and recently one drive lost it's membership to the array

I managed to re-create the array into it's previous configuration, but Windows sees it as a new drive (has not been initialized). All disk space available was allocated to the array

After scanning the drive with TestDisk, I was able to see my previous partition, and even browse into the folders and files that are still present

As below, I can see the previous partition is still intact (partition name was Stuffs)

However, following the steps in TestDisk leaves me at a blank of what to do when I get to this screen

I don't know what to do next from here... Any help would be appreciated

Cheers

The partition table and the partition are ok.
Run Windows Disk Manager and assign a drive letter to your partition. You should be able to access your data normally after that.

Hi, thanks for the reply

Just to be sure, do I initialise the disk as GPT (it was previously) and then assign a letter?

Hi

So I've initialised the disk, however the only option I have at the moment is to create a new volume on the drive
